Here we have an odd one out in the single shot military black powder cartridge rifle series ‘cos a Vetterli is a repeater innit!
This episode is simply to show what a repeater brings to the field especially in a situation where rapide fire may be necessary, whether the incoming horde makes a breakthrough or you’re charging an enemy position. The advantage is only clear as long as you have ammo in your mag but with 12 (or 13) in there and with the possibility of topping off, it’s quite a remarkable force multiplier at a time when most countries were getting to grips with the idea of single shot breechloading rifles.
Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
